Adam Rogers
Director of Design

Growing up near Detroit, a respect for the process of making was inevitable. Adam was close to and learned how to create from his grandfather, who ran the prototype shop for Pontiac Motors and whose approach to problem solving ultimately served as the foundation for Adamís design philosophy.

Adam studied architecture in college where the respect for aesthetics factored into his approach. After graduating, he worked in corporate architecture for a number of years. While working on large scale projects, he came to realize the personal connection to his work that he yearned for was elusive. Adam ultimately left the profession of architecture to shift the scale of his design.
After earning a Masterís Degree in Furniture Design + Woodworking from RIT (where he is also currently serving as a visiting professor), he had solidified his commitment to the respect for craftsmanship, understanding of and reverence for wood, and had established a sensitivity for the role of subtlety and nuance through simplicity and detail.

As Director of Design at Thos. Moser, Adam is responsible for the oversight of new product strategy, design, and manufacturing implementation. During his tenure, his work has been recognized with several design awards such as Good Design, Architizer A+ Awards, Interior Design Magazine's Best of Year, IIDA/HD Product Design Competition Award, Best of NeoCon, and MetropolisLikes, and has been featured in numerous publications including Dwell, Metropolis, Architectural Digest, Interior Design, Architect, Interiors & Sources and Contract. Adam is also a 2015 recipient of New England Home magazine's "5 under 40" award.
